In October, we invited customers to take part in a consultation on the government’s Green Paper on Social Housing. We held two focus groups – one in Leeds and one in Skipton – and we also sent out a survey to hundreds of our tenants and customers to complete. After gathering the information from all sources, we submitted Yorkshire Housing’s official response on November 6, the deadline set by the government.
We received a lot of interesting views and suggestions and many of these have been used as direct quotes in the submitted survey. Although we were not able to include every point that was made by each individual person, our response is a representation of the themes and views we read and heard. The full submission can be read here.
The government will now analyse all of the feedback they have received and will publish the outcome at a later date.
